Name: Hope Student Survey 2007

 

Abstract: Hope students were emailed a survey.Questions asked about demographics and personal habits, most of which related to Hope College.Nine hundred and five participantsí responses were recorded. There was a very even distribution of freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Some things to keep in mind while using this data are that it was given close to the end of the year and ďthe past seven daysĒ (as referred to in many questions) included Easter weekend for about the first 550 respondents.See the three sections of the original survey in the folder if you have questions.
